One of the most excellent gifts I received upon graduation in May was Tom Hodgkinson's How To Be Idle, which I carried around with me for weeks. It was comforting, and brilliant, and just something that I wanted more of in life. While certainly not for the Type As out there, it provided marvelous perspective on life as I embarked on this new phase. If you are looking for something to entertain for that lazy vacation, or just need a new out-of-the-rat-race view on life, this is it. (And on sale at Amazon!)
But it's really just a waiting game for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows right now. Yes, I'm going to wait in line for it at midnight. How often can one say that about a book in today's world?
